Tackling the Fiction/Nonfiction Balance in the Common Core (Again)

Tackling the Fiction/Nonfiction Balance in the Common Core (Again) | DEEPER Literacy Focused Instruction | Scoop.it
Veteran Education Week reporters Catherine Gewertz and Erik Robelen bring you news and analysis of issues at the core of classroom learning.
Teresa McDaniel's insight:

At JCM we are doing exactly what this article says most states and districts are not doing. To quote the author, "A key part of the solution (to closing the literacy gap) is to assign more reading."  I love knowing that JCM's faculty is on the breakthrough side of this argument!

The Common Core: Looking for 7 minute miracles

The Common Core: Looking for 7 minute miracles | DEEPER Literacy Focused Instruction | Scoop.it

As literacy expert Elfrieda H. “Freddy” Hiebert points out, “An additional 7 minutes of reading per day has been shown to differentiate classrooms in which students read well from those in which students read less well [and] can make a huge difference in students’ knowledge acquisition and capacity for reading complex text.”


Imagine the power that would accrue if students read an additional 7 minutes in school each day, and another 7 minutes—or more—after school. Imagine what that collective knowledge and wisdom might mean for our nation.

Reading Like a Historian: Sourcing

 

Sourcing documents is a key skill within the curriculum for Reading Like A Historian. Discover a way to structure a sourcing lesson for your High School History class.

 

What does it mean that literacy crosses all subjects? In short, this means that because we don’t read novels the same way we read science labs or the same way we read histories, all of us get to teach the different faces of literacy.

Alex Wade's curator insight, November 11, 2013 5:17 AM

With the recent fervour surrounding the positives and negatives of videogames and literacy, it is useful to see that videogames are seen to have a positive impact on this area of work.  There's a lot in this, from learning through the subtitles in Mass Effect, to the 'convergence culture' surrounding fan fictions and user generated content.
